Default [REPORTED]compass seems to change pitch in relation to the throttle control (not g?)

As title really. It seems like as the thrust is advanced the magnetic compass tilts in the pitch axis (extremely in some cases) in relation to the thrust input. This is most notable in reheat/burner.

I am not sure if this is supposed to do this or not?

If it is supposed to do this, it seems to me that the pitch change is associated with the position of the thrust, not the relative g force imparted on the aircraft (nor the movement of the jet) - to that end it seems like perhaps this is in error?

Sorry if this has been posted or is not an error or the dev team haven't got round to it yet.

It is the acceleration that tilts the compass.

Yes I thought that may be the case but it doesnt seem right as even when the jet is accelerating the compass still tilts.

I think it's worth one of the devs just having a quick glance to see if it is behaving as expected (doesnt do it in the FA18 for example).

Is this happening on ground - standing still with wheel brakes ON - when applying power?
Just to separate what is going on ...

No not happening with brakes on, but it was a little excessive with acceleration, it has been adjusted, but note there should be movement with acceleration.
Should be in the next patch.

thanks

Yep, that's - unfortunately - true for all "Schnappskompasse"

will be in the next update, tilt angles have been adjusted, as noted you will still see it affected by acceleration but it is not as extreme now.

thanks
